Joe Biden’s endorsements

We now know that Joe Biden will most likely become the Democratic Party’s Nominee for the Presidency in the 2020 Election. As November 3rd approaches, Biden has received many endorsements.

Perhaps the most notable endorsement is his former running mate and former United States President Barack Obama, who endorsed Biden on 4/14/20. He spoke on C-Span and broke his silence by saying, “Choosing Joe to be my vice president was one of the best decisions I ever made, and he became a close friend.” Barack then went onto officially endorse Biden for the Presidency.

Others who have endorsed Biden include former foes Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Beto O’Rourke. All three of these former candidates endorsed Joe Biden on 3/2/20 in Dallas, TX. They did this just before Super Tuesday.

Elizabeth Warren endorsed Biden on 4/15/20 seemingly waiting for Bernie Sanders, another candidate who shares closer views with Warren, to make his own tough decisions.

Bernie Sanders dropped out of the 2020 Presidential race on 4/8/20 and soon after endorsed Joe Biden. Bernie Sanders was the last candidate to have a realistic chance at winning the nomination.

Other notable endorsements include Al Gore, Madeleine Albright, John Kerry, James Comey, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Dianne Feinstein and many more. On 4/27/20 Nancy Pelosi joined the list of big time endorsements. She referred to Biden as a “Voice of Reason” and voiced how she thought he could be helpful in our battle against the coronavirus.
